Moustached Cowboy Records presents its second release: Rex Indignus – Instrumentalist. It's the first release by Rex Indignus, featuring 2 long pieces in a classical ambient drone style, both about 30 minutes long. Leave your mind to rest over the roomy and air- & water-filled flowing structures that Rex Indignus has created. The length of the 2 pieces is an ode to the compact-cassette era and the pieces follow a linear structure, suggesting a trip through 2 different environments, 2 different landscapes, revealing many sides of the human mind.
The title, Instrumentalist, is actually a philosophical pun: instrumentalist refers to the fact that the 2 pieces are made mainly with musical instruments, guitars, a kalimba, a toy piano and a mandolin. But at the same time instrumentalism is a philosophical school, holding the view that a concept or theory should be evaluated by how effectively it explains and predicts phenomena, as opposed to how accurately it describes objective reality. Withdrawing its judgment from reality, it actually gives the human mind room to concentrate on itself. The struggle to understand the outer world distracts people from what is truly real.
